ABOUT MAVIS STAPLES

It has been more than sixty years since Mavis Staples began singing with her ground-breaking American gospel, soul, and R&B singing family group, the Staple Singers. She is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner, and a National Heritage Fellowship Award recipient. One True Vine, the follow-up to 2010’s Grammy-winning album You Are Not Alone features new songs written specifically for Staples by returning producer Jeff Tweedy (Wilco).

Mavis has been described by Rolling Stone as having “an almost superhuman ability to implant the pure power of passion and emotion.” She just returned from a series of dates in Australia with Bonnie Raitt and dates in New Zealand with Wilco directly prior to her appearance at the White House for the filming of a PBS All-Star show dedicated to Memphis Soul this past spring. Mavis will be touring internationally in support of One True Vine including a stop in Western MA at the Calvin Theater! – mavisstaples.com

Opening the show Portland, Oregon’s Sallie Ford and The Sound Outside boast a mix of rockabilly, indie rock, jazz, Americana, and 1950s rock-and-roll energy.

Inductee Mavis Staples describes the crossover success of the Staple Singers during a Hall of Fame Series interview in July 1999:

    I’ve learned about some great outdoor spots to hike from Hilltown Families, especially from this post(http://hilltownfamilies.wordpress.com/2012/07/24/hf-510) last summer. I really like how you focus on promoting outdoor activities.

    Hilltown Families is a great resource that connects the Berkshires to the Connecticut River Valley through the Hilltowns. I recommend signing up for their newsletter and RSS feed to stay up-to-date with all the great events happening around us!
